The Veteran and Military Business Owners Association, VAMBOA, is a non-profit veteran business trade association that promotes and assists Veteran Business Owners, Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses (SDVOB) and Military Business Owners. We know that you possess special skills including leadership abilities and a work ethic second to none. Veteran Business Owners, Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses (SDVOB) and Military Business Owners are highly qualified to build successful businesses. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and responsible for job generation.
“People from the military have wonderful qualities that lend themselves to entrepreneurship,” said Debbie Gregory, one of the co-chairs and founders of VAMBOA. She said veterans and active military personnel who own businesses needed an organization that could help them get information, collaborate with each other, and grow through connections with government agencies and private businesses that want to use their goods and services.
There were 2.4 million veterans who owned businesses in the United States in 2007, the Census Bureau reports. Those businesses had receipts totaling $1.2 trillion. California had 9.8 percent of the nation’s veteran-owned businesses.

With this in mind, Linda Jefferson founded the national network of GoArmyHomes websites to help smooth a military family’s PCS move. Each site focuses on a particular post and gives you access to Army Family Relocation Specialists* (whether for purchase or rental) who know the area and can help you find the Army Family Friendly™ neighborhoods that best fit your family’s needs.
